Here at The Village, we know that stable and nurturing relationships with adults helps to build resiliency in children. That’s why we expanded our scope of services several years ago to support the mental health of those adults, in addition to children.
In order to provide the adults in our community with exceptional mental health care, The Village has a strong team of clinicians to provide support and guidance throughout the treatment process. One of these clinicians is Yanique Grant, who has been working with The Village since 2015.
As a licensed clinician, Yanique provides evidence-based and recovery-oriented individual and group therapy services for individuals seeking care in our Adult Services program. She works tirelessly to develop treatment plans for each person she works with to help them reach their goals.
“I hope to be an agent of change in bringing more awareness to how trauma affects our community,” said Yanique. “I love to work with others to reframe the way they view negative experiences and work with them to recreate their narratives.”
Prior to joining The Village, Yanique served as a program supervisor for a transitional residence and supported housing for adults with co-occurring diagnoses in New York. She has been working in the field of mental health and substance use in various capacities for over 10 years.
Yanique earned her Master’s of Social Work from the City University of New York – Hunter College and her Bachelor’s Degree in psychology from the City University of New York – Brooklyn College.
